The first thing I've learned (with the help of FT friends) when faced with changed locations and mushed up links is to check my browser window magnification setting. Changing it from 100% or changing it while a window is being displayed can cause some wrapping of text and link positions. On IE the magnify button is in a proximate position to the scroll button and can easily be struck in error.

Magnify means to zoom in or out on a page. The IE uses a magnifying glass to identify it in the lower righthand corner. It is normally set for 100%. For vision aid, I set mine to 125%, but it is set that way when I get the page displayed. If I change the setting to 150% or down to 75%. I sometimes encounter rearranged link positions (more so in going small to large)
Computers use a thing called wordwrap. When you come to the end of a line, it auto carriage returns and types on the next lower line. If you reposition the end of that line by changing the size of the viewed page, things like links can get misplaced.
There used to be a related problem from the cache realm. Sometimes a new page was displayed against the format/positions of an old page and links were no longer where they were intended to be. But I think the coding gurus have solved that problem. A refresh never hurt though.
So, in simpler terms, if you've unknowingly changed your display size, your link positions could be in unexpected places. Assure 100% magnification and refresh. If Mozilla doesn't have a magnifying glass icon in the window surround area. surely there will be a command listed under your browser command line - tools or view - to change the zoom level.

I can't see one....I can change the size of the writing using the control and mouse scrolling thing....Why is it just on quizzes and not other pages?? I'll try the mouse and control button....Thanks for helping.

Gracie, this might be a result of Terry changing some of the settings last week ... maybe when he gets here he'll be able to work out what's going on. It might help if you added a note to this thread saying what machine/device you're using and what operating system. For example, PC using Windows 7, laptop on Win 7 set to half screen, Android... whatever it is. In these circumstances, the chances are that only Terry can help you and other people, with the possible exception of Wes or Gtho4, can't help at all.

Perhaps someone with Mozilla (which I think is the base for IE: Internet Explorer) can help you better than I have.

The Facebook "share" seems to be overlapping lower portions (the "share" and "friends like" are approximately on the same line); for some reason zooming in and out via ctrl-mouse scroll resolves the issue. This only is a problem on Firefox, not on IE or Chrome.

On your FFx menu, the screen zoom in/out is under "view". You can also use Ctrl+ + or -.
